Becker & Hickl: Fast-Aquisition FLIM System with 25ps IRF Width

 Convall 128 01sec comp40

Fig. 1: Convallaria sample, 128 x 128 pixels, 1024 time channels, acquisition time 100 ms. FLIM image, decay curve in 5x5 pixel area

Becker & Hickl present a fast-acquisition FLIM system comprising a single detector, four parallel TCSPC channels, and a device that distributes the photon pulses into the four recording channels. The system features an electrical IRF width of less than 7 ps (FWHM), and a time channel width down to 820 fs. The optical time resolution with an HPM-100-06 hybrid detector is shorter than 25 ps (FWHM). The system is virtually free of pile-up effects and has drastically reduced counting loss. FLIM data can be recorded at acquisition times down to the fastest frame times of the commonly used galvanometer scanners.

LaVision Biotec and Lastek exhibit Ultramicroscope II at FOM18

IMG 20180328 110445

At the recent Focus on Microscopy 2018 meeting in Singapore, LaVision Biotec and Lastek exhibited the Ultramicroscope II Light Sheet Microscope in a live demonstration at their booth. 

The bidirectional triple light sheet technology of the UltraMicroscope II generates 6 focused light sheets to excite samples from the side while the fluorescence light is detected by a sCMOS camera perpendicular to the illumination plane. Moving the sample through the light sheet generates a 3D image stack. Selective excitation of the focal plane reduces bleaching and photo toxicity significantly. The open setup allows the analysis of cleared samples in any clearing solution or in aqueous media. The dynamic horizontal light sheet focus guarantees excellent Z-resolution covering the entire field of view.
